We’ve turned a 2 x 3 metre stand into a living room to die for at Tent London. The event is a showcase for designers to exhibit new products and definitely worth a visit if you are interested in interiors and to check out our new knit print wallpaper made in collaboration with 009textiles.

Following the success of our bespoke service we have created a new line of ‘off the peg’ products to be launched at Tent London from 20th – 24th September 2012.
All the pieces are now available to view online…thanks to the photographer Nina Duncan and stylist Diana Civil.
A few weeks ago my quest to source a 100% British Wool to use for my products (I currently use Italian wool) took me to the wonderful Laxton’s Mill in Yorkshire. Run by James (the great grandson of the original Laxton), who kindly took me around the plant and show me the processes. Stay tuned for further news about my move to British Wool.
I’m so excited to announce that Cico Books have commissioned us to create a book of 30 hand knit projects for the home to be published in spring 2013. Here’s a sneak peak of a few of the pieces which you will be able to make yourself.
Natuzzi has asked us to help them celebrate The Queen’s Jubilee by asking us to give their King and Queen chairs a knitted makeover. They will be on display in The Tottenham Court Road store until the 26th August when they will be auctioned for The Fashion and Textile’s Children’s Trust.
I’ve recently moved into a new studio at Southwark Studios. I’m still settling in, and moving all my yarn and knitting machines into the right places, but it’s a wonderful space with views of The Shard and inspiring loads of new work. Just give me a call to arrange an appointment if you want to pop in!
I was once told by a very clever man to use vinegar to clean down furniture of dirt and grime. You can see in the photo below the result of a bit of elbow grease and malt vinegar. The only problem is I’m now craving a large bag of chips!
Those up early on a Sunday morning may well have spotted me and my shop/studio on BBC Breakfast News, and then on the BBC News Channel during the day on the 4th March. They came down to film a feature about the growing trend for Pop-ups and what a wonderful opportunity they offer to small businesses. Please follow the below link to view the feature.
We are having a wonderful time in our little shop in Seven Dials, London. So much so that we are already talking about when we will be back – soon I hope! We just need a little time to go back to the studio and remake more of our knitted chairs to fill to the rafters. Here are a few sneaky pic of the shop! Open 25th Feb – 5th March. 38 Monmouth Street, London WC2H 9EP.
We are so excited to announce that we have been offered a pop-up shop in the prestigious shopping are of Seven Dials, Covent Garden in London. From the 23rd Feb – 5th March our studio will be relocated to number 38 Monmouth Street WC2H 9EP. Our pop-up open studio/boutique will give everyone the opportunity to see exactly how our knitted products are made and shop for special offers.
Friday – Wednesday: 10am-7pm
One this I particularly love is being given a challenge. And when Josh at Wolf & Badger asked if I could knit some freaky mannequins I jumped at the chance! The pair are in the windows of the Ledbury Road store from the 15th September 2011.
